NHS Services

Quadrant Dental Practice offers appointments to NHS and Private Patients. A list of some of the most common treatments can be found below.

Patients who wish to cancel an appointment or make an appointment can either telephone the practice on 01292 268880 or send an e-mail to us at: info@quadrantdentalpractice.co.uk

We try to encourage patients who are unable to attend to contact the surgery to give 24 hours notice if their appointment is unsuitable, to avoid any potential charges.

If you have a dental emergency which involves severe pain or swelling, and is restricting swallowing or extending to the eye, or post extraction bleeding, please contact the surgery as soon as possible where an appointment will be offered within 24 hours.

Should you have an emergency out with normal surgery hours our answering service will give full instructions on how to reach an emergency dentist.

Examples of costs to the patient for some types of NHS treatment are shown in the table below. Please note that NHS fee structure is complex and varies considerably from patient to patient depending of the treatment required. The NHS may review these fees at any time.
